After doing without the oven for a week or so we decided to turn to the internet and try doing the repair ourselves. We are not mechanically inclined/fix it yourself kind of people. This really was easy. Just detach the old element and attached the new one. A couple of bolts and snapping one out and then the new one in. Very simple

I looked for the proper part on this site. I was even able to find a video on how to install the part. It was great to see the step-by-step directions and tools needed. I ordered the part. It came quickly so that I was able to get my oven repaired before my kids came home for spring break. The only problem I had was the old screws were really stuck on. I used some WD-40 and they were still quite stuck. I learned that by gently going back and forth with the nut driver, rather than just trying to turn in the correct direction, that the screws came out quite easily. I felt so proud to be able to fix my own stove and save money in the process! Very satisfying for a single mom. Couldn't have done it without the video directions.

The problem was caused by the owner placing an aluminum catch pan under the bake element. The failure of the element was where it was in contact with the pan. The repair involved removing two screws pulling out the element to access the wires. The connectors were the pull off type so I just disconnected the wires from the old element and placed them on the new element, pushed the element back in place and replaced the two retaining screws. I suggested that the owner not place anything in contact with the bake element. Be sure to up-plug the stove plug before attempting repair.

The directions have been stated many time and they are quite simple. Take out the two screws, pull the element so the wire connections come through into the oven. Disconnect the element at the wire connectors and replace. This is a dirt easy job.

The only real area for a potential problem is pulling the wire connectors through into the oven. As long as you pull slow and from the back - right next to the whole, you will be fine. Take the connectors off carefully and you're golden. Easy job.

i called Sears and ordered the element and they charged me 16.99 plus the part to ship the next day. after 1 week i called them and they said the part was on backorder. i then check with them each week almost a month and the part was still on back order, I asked if they could fix it faster if they came to the house, they informed me it would cost 65.00 for a repair person to see what part i needed and after that they would schedule m e for a repair when the part came in. meanwhile i could not use my oven. i happened to go on line and came up with your web site. i ordered the part and 2 days later my son installed it. my oven works great . your company is awsome.

Removed screws. Tried to pull out old element but spade lugs on old element were bent at ninety degree angle. Once I figured that out I was able to manouver the old element out with the attached wires. Had to be carfull that the loose wires did not slip back ijn through the hole. Reaching in over the oven door was a but diffcult, but all-in-all the jobe was done in a few minutes.

I unplugged the stove for precautionary reasons.
I then removed the two screws holding element in place with the correct nutdriver.
I then carefully pulled out the element and pulled the two female spade connectors off.
I then compared to new element and plugged the new element in.
Finally I screwed in the new element and tested the oven.
It worked again!! I would recommend running the oven for a bit before placing anything in to bake. this allows burn off of stuff on the new element.
